Don't know how to get around that, except you can probably find the code online if you search. Smoeone did that for me once for a code for Windows 98.
You can also download a program for free called open office which is compatiable with Windows, Word Perfect and some other products as well.

I used this all the time when I was in school. I had Word Perfect at home and Word at school. You just have to make sure to save as a word.doc, and it will work perfectly.
